A thank you card

It has been a while since I coloured up a Wee Stamps image, so I thought I was due using one again. This super cute little girl is one of my favourites and this time I decided on a blue and purple combination!

The Kort og Godt charm, twine, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, various papers (Lili of the Valley and Pion Design for sure) together with a dash of acrylic paint and an embossed Papirdesign stamp make up this card. I made it for one of my co-workers as her leaving card and the text says thank you very much.

And here is another photo, just for fun.

Copics used: (dress) B91, B95, B97, B99, (hår) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (flower) V01, V05, V06, V09, (yellow) Y04, Y38, YR09, (floor) W1, W3, W5

Rowan Fairy

Friday this week was the 15th of the month and that means it was time for a new challenge at Copic Marker Norge. This time we’d like you to do Red, but not Christmas.

I’ve coloured in this adorable little fairy by Sylvia Zet, using copics. She is called Rowan Fairy.The colours I used can be found below the image. I used papers from Papermania, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts and ribbon from a local shop as well as some Candy from Craftwork Cards.

Sleepy dragon

It has been quiet from me the past few days as I have decided to do my Christmas shopping early this year. Well… start on it early anyway. So Manchester with its Christmas markets, Arndale Centre and Trafford Centre, as well as a trip to Blackburn is taking up most of my week! I have actually gotten a good start on the gift shopping as well, yey! Anyway, because there are Christmas decorations everywhere already, Christmas Carols played over the speakers and Christmas films on the TV, my card today is perhaps as far away from Christmas as it gets!

I have coloured in this adorable Sylvia Zet Wee Stamps dragon copics. The ribbons are from the Hobby House, the background paper is Papermania, the sentiment is Kort&Godt, the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and I believe the die is a QuicKutz one.

The various bits will be linked up when I get back home at the end of next week!

Winter fairy

I have finally started properly on Alyce’s Skin and Hair class over at Kit and Clowder. Let me just say the classes are wonderful. I am so much happier with my colouring and it is so much more fun making cards with images I have coloured myself now. I might even have to get rid of most of the pre-coloured toppers I’ve got!

Today I have decided to put up a card I made today. That is the second time in a short while I’ve been so eager to put up what I’ve coloured that I’ve taken a photo and added it to the blog straight away! Funnily enough, the previous one was also a blue winter card… Any guess what I love making most… lol.

I have used a Wee Stamps image, by Sylvia Zet, called Iris. I have coloured her in with copics with various B00s, Cs, E40s and E00s. The doily is from Papermania, the brown paper is from Tim Holtz, as are the snowflake die and the blue distress ink. The lace is from a local shop and the ribbon from a site where I ordered a dress.. The blue paper is from Papirdesign and the flowers are, as always, from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also added some dark blue glitter to the frantage.

Red headed fairy

Time for another card where I coloured in the image myself. I have made a few more of these lately, compared to earlier in the year. I have yet to get cracking on Alyce’s wonderful colouring class, but the plan is to do some this weekend!

Anyway, the image I decided to colour is a Sylvia Zet Wee Stamps image. I figured I’d go out of my comfort zone and give her a completely different hair colour, so I chose red, as it’s reasonably close to normal, heh. I have used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon from a local shop, dies and punchers by Tom Holtz, QuicKutz and Martha Stewart, and the sentiment is by Kort og Godt. I have used paper from a Tim Holtz pad for both the pink and teal colours.
